    35 Remington reloading data phenomenon!

    I haven't actively done any reloading in over 10 years. As such, I am having to put everything back in order, buy supplies and get an entire new set of data. I am loading for 6.5x55 Swede, 284 Winchester (Sav 99!), 300 WM and a Marlin 336 35 Rem (35 Rem is new to me)!!! Also 357 Mag, 44 Special, 44 Magnum, and 45 ACP. Also have a few Milsurp rifles I am eventually going to load for.

    Interesting thing I have noticed, as I collect data, mostly off Load Data.com, this forum and a few other odd places... I have b/n 2x to 4x more data and options with the 35 Rem than any other caliber! Seems most calibers have a few real pet loads, and although there are a number of one off options, there are usually a few basic loads, and certainly a few basic powders, that work, and the rest or 'who cares' options.

    OTH, with the 35 Rem, it seems there are a plethora of options, even though there are only 4 real bullet options (Speer 180 FP, any 200 RN, Hornady 200 LE and Speer 220 RN)!!! As I search, research and pull possible load data up, it looks like the 35 is VERY flexible when it comes to powders and potential load option, even with VERY limited bullet options!!!

    I just find this VERY INTERESTING for a supposedly near dead cartridge!!!

    Oscar,

    The venerable .35Remington is just one of those rifles that will shoot with accuracy (and a TON of authority) just about anything you wish to feed it. What a wonderful caliber in the Marlin levergun. No wonder they have formed a Team .35 Remington.

    There are a bunch of other bullets that work. I just used the Hornady 180 gr SSP to take a doe, and it did a great job out of my Remington 760. Swany likes the 180 gr XTP, I have used various 158 gr .357 bullets with much success, so your have many more options. Folks who think the 35 Remington is not a game getter have never used one. I've killed 6 deer over the last 3 years with the 35 using 6 different bullets. 180 gr Speer FN, 180 gr SSP, 200 gr Hornady, 200 gr Core-Lokt, 200 gr FTX and the 220 Gr Speer. All of them worked well.

    Re: 35 Remington reloading data phenomenon!

    Most people don't realize what they have in a 35 Remington when used in a Marlin rifle. For example, the Shooter's Bible lists a 356 Winchester at 2460 ft/sec muzzle velocity and a 358 Winchester at 2490 ft/sec muzzle velocity with 24 inch barrels. Subtract the rule of thumb 50 ft/sec per inch for a 20 inch barrel, the 356 is 2260 ft/sec and the 358 is 2290 ft sec.

    Now for the interesting part. The 35 Remington was developed for a weak action Remington semi-automatic and is loaded for 30,000 lbs pressure. Marlin uses the same receiver and action for the 35 Remington as they use for the 30-30 Winchester and 375 Winchester. Both the 30-30 and 375 are loaded to 42,000 lbs. Many people take advantage of the stronger Marlin receiver and action and reload 35+ P cartridges to get more velocity. My reloads run 2224 ft/sec average. Their are other people who reload to higher velocities.

    Basically, the 35 Remington is equal to a 356 or 358 using a 20 inch barrel. The 358 Winchester advantage is the ability to shoot pointed bullets. This is somewhat offset with Hornady's foam tipped bullets. In my opinion, the Remington Core-Lokt is the best bullet.

    One more food for thought, there are several gun smiths that will rechamber Marlin rifles to 356 Winchester. The 356 Winchester cartridge is a 60,000 lb pressure cartridge. They consider the 356 Winchester perfectly safe in a Marlin rifle and the things Wild West does with a Marlin rilfe is unbelieveable.
